Toboggan runs and sledging in Munich City
You do not have to drive far away from munich to find great sledging spots. If there is enough snow you should try those:
Olympiapark, Martin-Luther-King Weg 1, 80809 München
Take the U3 to the station Olympic center "Olympiazentrum". Now follow the directions to Olympic mountain "Olympiaberg".
The Olympic mountain is not only the highest sledging hill in Munich, but certainly also the most varied and beautiful. Here you find long shallow slopes, steep high-speed runs and even a snow tube lane directly by the lake. ? If the weather conditions are good, from the top of the Olympic mountain you can enjoy a very nice view over Munich with the Alps. ?
Theresienwiese Bavariaring, 80336 München
The U5 or U4 to Theresienwiese. Coming out of the U-Bahn you can already see the Bavaria statue.
This spot is especial due to the lovely location just below the statue of the Bavaria. One can only hardly imagine the Oktoberfest taking place on this site when it is completely covered with snow. With the sledge you can speed down the small hill pretty quickly.
Luitpoldpark, Voelderndorffstr. 1, 80804 München
Take the U3 or U2 to Scheidplatz., the sledging hill is just a few meters away.
The Luitpold Park hill counts to one of the best sledging hills in Munich. You can choose between a fast downhill run and a long shallow run . On the weekend it can be pretty crowded here, therefore we recommend you to go during the week.
Hill of the Monopteros monument at English Garden, Englischer Garten 1, 80538 München
Take the U3 or U6 to university. Then walk towards the "Geschwister Scholl" Place, turn into the Veterinärstrasse, cross the river and from there you will already see the monument.
The hill is one of the smaller ones and not very exciting, but the location is really nice and especially if you go with little children it will be great fun.
Maxlberg at the Maximilianeum
Take the U-Bahn U4 or U5 to Max Weber Platz or Tram 19 to Maximilianeum
The sledging hill can be found on the left side below the Maximilianeum. There is a wide slope which is perfect for families with children. The only tree on the slope is protected with straw bales. Adventureous sledgers can take the so called "death trail" which goes right down to the Isar River and people have to avoid the many trees that are on the trail.
Ostpark, Feichtstr. 19, 81735 München
Take the U5 to Michaelibad. Pass by the swimming pool 'Michaelibad" and you will already see the hill.
Ostpark has a nice sledding hill with many possibilities. From the top you can fly at high speed downhill or you can sledge more slowly down the flat sides. There is also a snow tube run available on the back of the hill. Please be aware that due the south-east location of the hill, the snow is melting here relatively quickly.
Westpark, Alfred-Ludwig-Weg, 81377 München
Take the U6 to West Park. The hill can be clearly seen just beside the small lake. ? When going there by car, you can park at the end of the Westendstrasse. There are many parking places but it may happen that it is quite crowded.
In 1984 the IGA (International Horticultural Exposition) took place in the park, now you can sledge down the mountains. There are many small hills in the park, but the best is the bigger hill in the west of the park.
BUGA Hill - Riemer Park
Take the U2 to Messestadt-Ost and get off in the front . Keep right and you will already see the hill. ?
Thanks to the Federal Garden Show 2005 in Munich, the eastern part of the city has another toboggan run. The hill is up to 22 meters high and from the top you have a really great view if the weather is good.
Pasinger Stadtpark, Hugo-Fey-Weg1, 81241 München
Take the S6 to Lochham. From there you can walk down the Lochhamer Street or you go one stop by bus to the junction Rottenbucher Straße / Wasserbogen. On the Wasserbogen you cross the highway and turn right to the Pasinger city park. After 100 meters, the sledding hill can be found on the left side. ?
This toboggan run exists because of the highway. During the construction of the highway A96 a new hill was built in Pasing park which now is a great sledging hill in winter. Long mogul slopes can make your sledge jump now and then. It is even more fun if you sledge down with a tire.
